Hello everyone! First of all, thank you for your interest in our crowdfunding project. During the last months we have worked tirelessly to finish recording, mixing and creating visuals for our new album. There are 12 songs in total that are ready to be shared, but we would love to be able to offer them in vinyl format! There will be roughly 100 copies pressed in limited edition green vinyl, including special cover artwork, and that's why we need some financial support to carry out this project.

THE RAILROAD BAND

We are a blues band from the north of Spain. Originally, the band consisted of the Manso brothers and the voice of Carlota Soto. After several years playing in the venues of the city, we decided to emigrate to London. There, we met British-French violinist Adele Davies, who joined the band.

In London we continued playing live, performing in bars and venues such as the Spiritual Bar in Camden, or the mythical Water Rats, and at festivals such as the Somers Town Festival in Kings Cross, to name a few notable gigs.

In 2018 we recorded 'Tomorrow Is Too Late', an acoustic album at Soup Studios (aboard a boat on the Thames). The album was released in digital format and is available to listen to on Spotify.

ULTRATUMBA

At the end of 2020 and in the following remaining months of living in England, we set to work recording songs from our South London living room with the help of Galician musician and producer Zapa, and Scottish recording technician Paul Milne. Many of the songs on the album had been in a state of flux and creative realisation since 2019. We worked together both musically and lyrically on each of the songs throughout these years.

The recording process was somewhat straightforward and most of the songs were recorded with everyone playing live in the same room, with one microphone, and in one or two takes, with minimal use of overdubs and effects. The entire album was then recorded on tape to emulate the vintage, low-fi sound of blues recordings from the 1930s-1940s.

The resulting lo-fi album is an ambiguous cross of genres: from Blues to Country, with Latin, Galician and Roma musical influences. Ultratumba, meaning the 'Afterlife' in Spanish, includes 12 new songs that each riff off this theme in different ways.
